HOUSTON – JUNE 14, 2011 – There will be more baby boomers retiring this year than ever before. Sometimes when people retire, they feel useless and fail to plan for a life without working. Certified Personal Trainer, Yvette Goree-Harris encourages retirees to become more active and to get in better shape, not just for looks but for health. Exercise is the true “fountain of youth.” Most women spend their entire lives working and taking care of the family. They leave themselves for last. When retirement comes, they immediately see a decrease in energy and weight gain because of inactivity and poor eating habits.

Most just get comfortable in an “easy chair”. Yvette Goree-Harris says get up and move. If you don’t use it, you will surely lose it. Yvette specializes in working with women over 35. By starting an exercise routine with cardio and weights, you immediately see a difference in how you look and feel. You increase energy strength and endurance while reducing your weight, blood pressure and stress level. By eating healthier meals you will see the pounds shed. Retirement is a time of joy and freedom. Enjoy it and LIVE well!
